Eminem Clubs Virtual Baby Seals to Death in New Video

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Never a stranger to controversy, Eminem is courting it again with his appearance in Cee Lo Green’s new music video.

In the video for Cee Lo’s new song with Slaughterhouse, ‘My Life,’ the rapper/actor pokes fun at the public’s perception of rap stars. The video features broadcaster Robin Leach in a fictitious show ‘Rappers Are Richer Than You,’ which hearkens back to Leach’s former hit show, ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.’

Eminem is shown shooting his gold and platinum discs instead of clay pigeons on a shooting range, bathing in the “tears of other rappers,” in efforts to maintain his youth, and being fed grapes by a pet dinosaur on a throne inside “his castle.” As if that weren’t enough material excess, Eminem is shown clubbing “imported baby seals from the Arctic” to death in a whack-a-mole arcade game. Thankfully, the baby seals are virtual, not real.

Hopefully, the gratuitous violence has an artistic point, but whether or not viewers will be able to glean a deeper message from the violent imagery remains to be seen.
